Enable or Disable Commenting on your Stream


There are three ways you can control the flow of comments into your stream:

  • Allow Comments with Full Moderation: Allow users to comment on your stream. All comments made on your stream are sent to your Moderation Queue, to be approved before showing up on the front-end of your stream. (Commenting: ON, Moderation: ON)

NOTE: There is no restriction on the number of characters one can leave in a comment.  


  • All Comments with No Moderation: Allow users to comment on your stream. All comments will show up automatically on the front-end of your stream, without moderation. (Commenting: ON, Moderation: OFF)


 

  • Disabled: Users cannot submit comments, and the comment box is not shown. (Commenting: OFF)


 

To enable or disable commenting on your stream:

  1. Go to your stream. Navigate to Menu > Setup > Stream from the top of the page, to go to your stream’s Basic Setup page.
  2. Scroll down the page to the Commenting module, move the slider to the On or Off position to enable or disable commenting on your stream.
